Those are staples in Tinkerbell's diet. Especially in the winter when I use more frozen veggies than fresh.

Good luck in her losing weight. The broccoli may cause some gas but you can give her a beano before hand. Make sure you are giving her the thyroid meds on an empty stomach because that will make a difference.

The only reason I'd hesitate with broccoli is that it could make her very gassy!! As long as you're willing to risk some stinky dog toots, should be no problem.

I recently attended a seminar put on by Rhonda Hovan from Faera Golden Retrievers regarding Cancer in Goldens. One suggestion (among many) was that 1/2 cup of blended broccoli (barf consistency) played a big part in cancer prevention. My dogs get it every day and there is no gas.

Hi Denise!!!!

I give my boyz broccoli all the time. I am growing it now and they will eat it raw, they love it. I have not had issues with gas. In the winter I buy the frozen and add it to their dinners. Absolutely safe and healthy.

We started Maggie on a home cooked diet about 3 weeks ago and are following Dr. Pitcarin's regime. He says some veggies should be cooked first for easier digestion, like brocolli and cauliflower. Judgegirl, I wonder if blending and not cooking helps with digestion. We've started putting raw carrots thru the meat grinder and not cooking in hopes of preserving nutrients.

Sometimes I think our little Golden girl eats better than we do!

Gibby gets them as snacks and no gas issues here.

You must film the front close up of the dog munching on raw broccoli and cauliflower! Cutest thing in the world.

Caleb gets broccoli and cauliflower all the time. I cut the stems into long strips, toss them in the freezer and give them to him (still frozen) on hot days. Same goes for carrots.
